“Proper action will be taken,” the city mayor said, adding that those found positive for drug use won’t be rehired.

Their names will also be submitted to the Philippine National Police, he added.

Treñas required job hire and casual employees to take drug tests every quarter to ensure that no drug users
work for the city government.
